Fischer: Nintendo “working on solution” to Wii storage issue, but hard drive ruled out

Tuesday, 17th June 2008 12:02 GMT By Patrick Garratt

According to this GI story, Nintendo of Europe marketing boss Laurent Fischer has confirmed that a Wii storage solution is on the way – but it’s not going to be a hard drive.

“We definitely detect that they [gamers] are serious and we know there is an issue in this, so it’s something that we’re working on,” he said.

“Definitely there’s no plan to issue hardware, an external hard drive, but we know that we have an issue in that area,” he added. “It’s very obvious and we’re perfectly aware of it, but there’s nothing we can say beyond this.”

    1) HDD for holiday season.


    2) Repackaged “Wii Lite” with extended memory.

    I still expect this same man to come out with something along the lines of “It was just a misunderstanding, I meant to say our most dear core gamers get their hard disk asap. all the time.”.
